Tonight I realized there is a flail/ mace (pictured fourth) hovering over my head while reading trivia at The Arsenal.  Pretty appropriate decor for a place called the Arsenal.  It'll come in handy if I catch someone using a smart phone during King Trivia.  Just kidding!  But seriously.  Breaking rule number two (no outside sources) is a pretty serious crime in the trivia world, but I won't maim anyone over it.  I think there is a higher chance of the flail/mace falling on me than me learning how to wield it.

In other news, eight teams battled valiantly for the $50 Arsenal gift card.  A very competitive group!  It was hard to see a clear leader until the beginning of round 7.  Before then, the majority of the teams were neck and neck all night.  At the end of the 6th round, the Primorsk Players (pictured first) took a 6 point lead with the Nerdz of Vale (pictured second) nipping at their heels in second.  It all came down to who could name the most US States that are referenced on a standard Monopoly board.  Shave My Back (pictured third) went for the double or nothing option and ended with a big zero after missing only one US state.  They claim they were missing their conservative teammate who prevents them from going all or nothing in every round (they went for the double in the 6th round too and came up with zero after missing only one answer).  Sometimes you just have to go big or go home and I respect that.  They didn't go away empty handed though!  They ended up placing third and winning a $10 gift card!  The Primorsk Players ended up taking the grand prize when they successfully doubled down, naming all 10 US states! The Nerdz of Vale stayed right behind them and ended in second.  Congratulations to the winners! Thanks to everyone for coming out to play!!
